My late father bought 5 acres of land in Floyd county Indiana and built a house on this land. My mother now has the deeds to this property. We have a tenant in the property on a lease to buy arrangement who has now broken the original contract. My step brother lives in the States and is trying to claim the house for himself. Who do you recommend that I contact to try to sort this mess out. My mother is 74 years old and doesn't have a great deal of money.
State/Country relating to Question: Indiana
We have contacted the tenant with new bank account details, however with the distance (we are in the UK) we are not sure wether our step brother is passing on the information or if he has tried any other steps to try to gain the property
Hi there:so you are just looking for a contact point in the area?
I really need to know the best person I can contact state side to deal with this matter
Hi again: here is my recommendation--there is no guarantee that any particular person would be available or willing to take any particular case, but I would strongly suggest that you establish contact with an Indiana real estate attorney to discuss your rights and options. I would refer you to www.martindale.com to find someone with the specialty and experience in the geographic area who can handle the case. Martindale lists basically every practicing attorney in the U.S.; it allow searches by areas of expertise and location, and it is the tool that most attorneys choose to use when looking for someone outside of our own geographic area. Let me know if more information is needed, and please remember to click "accept". Thank you.
